Sean Lock, UK comedian, aged 58 from cancer. He had talked of having skin cancer in the past. Such a shame, he was one of my 3 favourite comedians of the current crop * (Lee Mack and Rhod Gilbert, since you're asking), he looked like any bloke you might meet in a pub, but his comedy took you on surreal trips you'd never expect. RIP, Purple Van Man!
* Jasper Carrott, who I was lucky enough to see live in the 70's, is unparalleled by any crop!
After you posted this a few days ago, been watching some great tributes, mainly from comedians. Bill Bailey was a great friend of his and knew he was suffering from cancer. The same for Lee Mack, who again knew of his condition. Nice tribute from Susan Dent from Countdown. 58 is too early. I turn 60 in 2 months.
